With Panini America taking over as the NFL’s exclusive trading card partner next year, 2015 Topps Chrome Football might the last time we see the product in its current form. Set to release just before Thanksgiving, Chrome will again offer 24 packs per box with a bounty of Refractor parallels and one on card rookie autograph per box. You can download a final checklist below.
The rookie autographs will feature players in their new NFL uniforms with Black (# to 25), Pulsar (15), Gold (10), Red (5) and SuperFractors (1/1) at the top of the chase list. A Hot Box Refractor will be packed in each case.
Rookie Autograph Patches will feature an on-card autograph and multi-colored patch on chrome refractor technology. The hobby only insert will be sequentially numbered and include, for the first time, a 1/1 SuperFractor randomly inserted into a hobby box.
2015 marks Topps’ 60th anniversary as a football card maker and Chrome will include a special subset using designs from the past to feature veteran and rookie autographs. Each card will be numbered with more SuperFractors.
There will be non-autographed 60th Anniversary and Yard Club insert cards as well.
Chrome will also feature a Super Bowl 50 Die Cut insert, honoring the retired legends and veterans who have won a Super Bowl. There will be Refractor versions numbered to 99 and Pulsar Refractors numbered to 50 as well as SuperFractors.
